Dec 19 2016 (03:32)   Superfast train to Goa, new terminus at Kalyan soon

Mumbai: Railway minister Suresh Prabhu on Sunday announced a new terminus for long-distance trains at Kalyan, a 130kmph superfast train from Mumbai to Goa and an all-AC Humsafar train with modern amenities from here soon.
Prabhu was speaking at a function to flag off a new train from Bandra Terminus to Gorakhpur. He promised Rs 40,000 crore for city projects to develop and strengthen the rail network, provide more facilities and ensure speedy transit. It could include the Bandra-Virar and CST-Panvel elevated corridors, besides projects under MUTP-III, formulated by Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority, sources said.
those heading to Konkan or Goa, a superfast Tejas train will soon ensure you reach your destination in the fastest possible time," he said. Expected early next year, it will be faster than Jan Shatabdi, which travels at 120kmph, officials said. Tejas will offer services such as entertainment, local cuisine and Wi-Fi. It will have TV screens on the back of each seat. The Jan Shatabdi ferries passengers to Goa in eight hours and 25 minutes.
The Humsafar train, to be launched in north India, will start from Mumbai, although Prabhu did not disclose the destination. It will have 16 AC III-tier coaches and two power cars. It could run inter-city overnight journeys and has been targeted at middle-class passengers. The train will have CCTV, global positioning system (GPS)-based passenger information, mobile and laptop charging points, integrated Braille display for the visually impaired, a smoke detection and suppression system and a high-quality exterior and interior design.
Prabhu was keen on a terminus for Kalyan and redevelopment of Thane station soon. Several outstation trains stop at Kalyan, so some could be terminated there once the terminus is built, sources said.
Prabhu also launched other facilities and train services for commuters on Sunday. "I am happy that Diva has finally got 24 fast train halts, it will ensure there is no more congestion, especially during peak hours. Besides, we are converting 12 services of 12-coach rakes to 15-coach rakes on the Western Railway suburban section; 25% more commuters can be ferried in each service."
He also launched Wi-Fi services for commuters at Vashi, Belapur, Kurla, Mumbai CST, Byculla, Panvel, Thane and Borivli stations, platform 7 at Dadar (WR), an FOB at Mankhurd and escalators at Dadar (WR), Bhayander and Vasai Road.

JS gets the highest priority over the route. Even Rajdhani has to wait for JS to cross. Probably because of the popularity of the train.
Also, KR is very heartless about special trains. Any train whose number starts with 0 gets sandwiched.

Give your opinions. Is bullet train project making worth? Are we in criteria for running that?
Point: Lack of infrastructure that includes- Dedicated freight corridors which is very much needed; railway stations with good infrastructures, Metro rails and their extensions, etc. Before this, do we need to worry for bullet train?
Just give your opinions. Thank You!

Dec 17 2015 (17:34)   Soon, fast trains on Central Railway will have more halts

Jayashree ❖ Amita*^   35120 news posts
Entry# 1682029   News Entry# 251251         Tags   Past Edits
Fast locals on Central Railway will soon have more stops as Central Railway (CR) looks for ways to reduce overcrowding and commuter deaths during peak hours.
CR expects reducing speed and adding halts to fast trains will encourage more people to opt for slow services which have few takers. CR runs a total of 825 services on the Main line, of which 210 locals run on the fast corridor.
Fast locals on CR have fewer stoppages than those operating on the fast corridor on Western Railway. 
Kalyan-CST, most trains halt only at Dombivli, Thane, Mulund, Ghatkopar, Kurla and Byculla. Since the inter-distance between stations is longer, the train is able achieve better acceleration and at times clock a speed of 100kmph. By allowing trains to halt at more stations, the authorities plan to bring down the speed as there will frequent deceleration. 
Stations like Sion, Matunga, Bhandup, Vikhroli will have stoppages once the new time-table is prepared. 
The travel time between CST-Kalyan by a fast train is 60 minutes and CR estimates a train will take seven to 10 minutes longer if more halts are provided. On WR, a fast train travelling the 60km distance between Churchgate-Virar stops at 16 stations. On other hand, CR trains on the 55km Kalyan-CST stretch stops at an average of nine stations.
While commuters travelling shorter distances will benefit, those to far flung areas will find their commute time rising further.
